Psalm 33:4 For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all He does.

Psalm 33:12 (Be in prayer for our country!) Blessed in the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.

Psalm 33:15 He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

Psalm 33:20-22 We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.

While reading Psalm 33:20-22 and especially verse 21, it struck me that as we wait upon the Lord, our hearts rejoice in Him. Waiting on God and putting our hope in Him, is not a time of sitting around and doing nothing. Waiting for the Lord to do something on our behalf or open the doors He wants us to walk through, is not just a time of sitting back and doing nothing. During this time we are not only exercising our faith in Him by putting our hope in Him, we are to be rejoicing. “In Him our hearts rejoice.” Because we trust in His holy name, because we know that He is our help and our shield, because we know that He is on our side and wants only what is best for us, we rejoice! As we wait on the Lord, putting our faith to work and resting all of our hopes in Him, we praise Him, we worship Him. “In Him our hearts rejoice.”

Psalm 63:7-8 Because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings. My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.
